1 1/2 cups fine unsweetened shredded coconut 5-6 tablespoons coconut oil 1/3 cup coconut milk (i use light) Pure stevia extract, to taste (start with 1/8 of a teaspoon) Raw almonds 7 oz dagoba organic extra dark 80% chocolate Pinch of unrefined sea salt
Melt coconut oil over low heat. Stir together coconut milk, unsweetened coconut, salt, and stevia. Pour in hot coconut oil and mix together thoroughly, forming a smooth paste. Drop dollops of the coconut mixture on to aluminum foil or waxed paper, and shape into flat logs with your fingertips. Top with almonds (assuming 4 almonds per bar), pressing the nuts down gently into the filling. Freeze for 5 minutes, or until filling is firm and cold. Melt chocolate over double boiler on stove. Add 1/16 teaspoon of stevia and taste. Adjust sweetness level if necessary. Stick toothpicks into cold filling. Dip filling into chocolate, return to wax paper, and remove toothpick. Wait a minute or two for chocolate coating to harden, and enjoy!
